The Dallas Morning News is reporting that the Cowboys are bringing in Sam Houston State quarterback Rhett Bomar for a workout. This could be an interesting kid to have a look at. I taught in the Grand Prairie (TX) School District when Bomar was in high school there. Rhett has mad skills, a big arm, [...]

“My biggest thing is winning. All I want to do is win. My goal is 75 catches, 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. But If I catch two balls and we win that will be OK. I’m trying to prepare myself for the season. I am trying to get myself better to make this team better.” [...]

What is more important to a team than a franchise quarterback? Not much. Where are the Arizona Cardinals of a year ago without the reemergence of Kurt Warner? Who wins the Super Bowl if the Steelers don’t have the steady hand of Big Ben Roethlisberger on the wheel? Subtract the Roger Staubachs, Terry Bradshaws, Joe [...]

Witten Gets It Right

Jason Witten finally broke his off-season silence. He didn’t say much, but in his few words, he said a great deal. After admitting that T.O.’s presence on the field made him (Jason, that is) a better player, the All-Pro tight end added this nugget: “I don’t want to look at it and say we are [...]

While still an ESPN analyst and before heading off with his anointing oil to resurrect yet another storied NFL franchise from a self-dug grave, Bill Parcells shared a list he had given to Tony Romo while he was the coach of the Cowboys. Admittedly, I am no Big Bill fan. He doesn’t need any additional [...]

The Great QB Debate: Who is the Greatest Cowboys Quarterback Ever?

There is no doubt about it: Lifelong Dallas Cowboys fans are pretty spoiled when it comes to the man occupying the most important position on the field. Few franchises can boast a richer tradition of Quarterbacking excellence. From Dandy Don, the greatest athlete ever to hail from Mount Vernon, Texas, to Troy Aikman, the pride [...]

Making the Grade : An Indepth Look at the History of the Cowboys' First Round Draft Picks

Since their first draft in 1961, the Dallas Cowboys have drafted 46 players in the first round. Five of these players have their busts in the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Way more than five of them were just busts. That is, of course, to be expected. The NFL Draft is an inexact science. [...]
